Digitized Bulldog Yearbooks - every page - from 1949-1977

The Wauconda Area Library recently partnered with the Internet Archive (Archive.org) to digitize historic Wauconda High School Yearbooks. The digitized yearbooks range from the year 1949 to the year 1977 (with some gaps) and are fully searchable. 

Visit the Collection

Whether you are looking for yourself, a family member, or any other topic of interest, searching is as easy as typing in a keyword. Take a page-by-page tour of Wauconda Area history with these stunning high-resolution yearbook images.

Register for Full Access

Account with archive.org required for full access to every page in the collection. It's so easy, and it's FREE!  Once registered and logged in, you will have full access not only to the Yearbooks but to the millions of titles available in The Internet Archive.  Your device can keep you logged in for future use.

Digital History Collection

The Wauconda yearbooks are a valuable expansion of our Wauconda Area Digital History Collection, made possible by the work of long-time Wauconda Area resident Neville Carr. The collection is sorted into albums such as People, Business, Houses, and more to make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Enjoy your trip down memory lane!

Donate to the Yearbook Collection

Visitors will notice there are some gaps in this Yearbook collection.  The library welcomes donations of past WHS yearbooks that are not already included in its collection. If they are in good shape, we will add them to this online collection!  We will return your yearbooks once they have been digitized.

Our Partners

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose goal is to build a digital library of Internet websites and other cultural artifacts with free access to all.

Special thanks to Wauconda High School for granting the library permission to add these yearbooks to The Internet Archive.
